Hello African American Faculty, Staff and Friends-

AAFSA has a proud history of serving the entire University Community with a focus on providing a support network and a host of resources for African and African American faculty, staff, students and supporters. We are committed to promoting academic excellence and mentoring for our African-American students.

Our first meeting of the year will be September 15, 2015 from 12:00 -1:30pm in the African American Cultural Center (Lunch provided). Grab a bite to eat, meet new people, and learn about the benefits of joining AAFSA. We hope to see all of you there.
